Following the season, the Detroit Pistons parted ways with head coach Lawrence Frank. They are beginning the interview process to find his replacement, and they met with former Portland Trail Blazers head coach Nate McMillan today, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
McMillan is considered the favorite to ultimately become the Pistons next head coach. He won 54 games as the coach of the Blazers during the 2008-09 season, but he was fired by Portland toward the end of the lockout shortened campaign of 2011-12. Prior to his dismissal, McMillan had made the playoffs for three consecutive seasons, only to be knocked out in the first round each time.
Beyond McMillan, the Pistons are expected to interview Phoenix Suns interim coach Lindsey Hunter -- who's expected to lose his job with the team since the firing of general manager Lance Blanks -- and Houston Rockets assistant coach Kelvin Sampson. The Pistons won't be able to meet with Sampson -- who's also reportedly in the mix for the Milwaukee Bucks head coaching job -- until the Rockets' playoff run ends.
